welcome back to the sports xtra. i'm scott smith. a month ago the redskins got a scare as rg3 was con cussed. sore ribs today, and got x- rays, and negative. smacked in the face by greg hardy. benefit with a roughing passing call. but these hits add up. he was sacked four times in the game. panthers credited with nine hits, which in all reality, more than that. in fact, even into the game's waning minutes, griffin was
putting his body on the line, diving into ferocious panther hits, hoping his never say die approach to the game inspires his teammates. >> guys see that, see their quarterback putting it on the line every single play, makes them want to put it on the line every play. it's more about, you know, inspiring guys to go out and no matter what the score is, no matter what the down and distance is, we can make it happen, because we're the ones out there. i'm fine. i'll be ready to go. nobody will crush the fight i have in myself to be the greatest. doesn't matter what it is. i'll make sure that i continue to help my team win games. redskins defense nothing to brag about. credit to them for a better job at least defensively today. half of cam newton's passing yards came off two plays. this 19-yarder to steve smith on 3rd down. and 82-yard shot in the second
half here. newton to edwards. while the skins cep the opponent under their average in points and yards today, it wasn't enough. as lorenzo alexander explains. >> we did a good job as far as keeping everything in front of us. obviously every week we give up something big and that's ultimately what hurts. giving up points. we need to figure out a way on defense to continue to create turnovers, even the score and give our offense more opportunities to win games. whole point is to keep the opponent to one point less than what we score and we haven't been able to do that the last three weeks and that's disheartening to us. >> redskins were burnt last week by the black and yellow, today, new york's turn to taste defeat against the steelers. nissan's sports xtra continues after this.

defending super bowl champs came into the week playing as good as anybody. playing the steelers and both teams handed the redskins their last losses. today's game perhaps giving the fans something else to think about for a few hours, those victims in the wake of superstorm sandy. knocks the ball out, recovers and heads for the house with lead blockers. they would review this play, and yet look for yourself and judge for yourself. they still rule a fumble and a
touchdown for the giants. hand moving forward, yes. the steelers come to life in the final quarter. mike wallace on the receiving end of this 51-yard td. a comeback win, 24-20 the final. giant fall to 6-3 on the year. browns hosting the ravens. fan of the day award there. no score ravens, running the no hurdle. rice in from 8 yards out. baltimore up 7-0. you know what it's time to do. time to march. rice doing his thing. late fourth quarter, flacco pitches to bernard. down the sideline for a 12-yard touchdown strike. 14-0. flacco to the former terrapin, corey smith goes

well, lelet me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough. but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven.

he was another one that came in and gave us a big lift. and, you know, he's got to learn from it. >> wizards will try to get revenge later this week, back at it wednesday from boston. falcons improve to a perfect 8- 0 with a 19-13 victory over the cowboys. we'll have the latest on mike shanahan. he'll meet with the media tomorrow. we'll have that tomorrow at 5:00. and thanks to rich dunn, great job. thanks for watching sports xtra. have a great monday. captions by: caption colorado, llc.
